Romney Claims NRA Endorsement He Didn't Receive
Made popular 1986 days ago in
Maybe it was the pressure of the moment. Being under the Tim Russert spotlight can get to anyone. Under Russert's grilling about guns on this morning's "Meet the Press," former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney claimed an endorsement he'd never won.
In answer to questions about whether he would sign an assault weapons ban, Romney said: "Just as the president said, he would have, he would have signed that bill if it came to his desk, and so would have I. And, and, and yet I also was pleased to have the support of the NRA when I ran for governor. I sought it, I seek it now. I'd love to have their support."
Later in the interview, he added the following:
"I just talked about, about guns. I told you what my position was, and what I, what I did as governor; the fact that I received the endorsement of the NRA."
He was never endorsed by the NRA, and didn't have their official support during his 2002 gubernatorial campaign. The NRA declined to endorse in that race, as was acknowledged by Romney's spokesman this morning.

I am all for the right to carry arms, but assault rifles? That's a bit much no? I think you need to make assault rifles difficult for the masses to get their hands on them.

Equal, do you think because some one owns a "semi auto rifle" it makes them more likely to use it in the commission of a crime? Rifles are used in about 2% of crimes involving guns. Your heart seems to be in the rite place just a little misdirected. By the way hunting rifles .308 .338 ect. are much more powerful than what he considers an assault rifle, they fire much smaller and less powerful rounds
